As the last entry in my series of book reviews on Louise Michelle Bomber’s book, Inside I’m Hurting, I’d like to include a quote from her final chapter. I really respect Bomber’s vision for working with attachment-challenged children in schools. Unfortunately, I think it’s very unlikely that her suggestions could be adopted in the U.S. (Bomber is from the UK). But it’s nice to dream.
Bomber writes, “My vision for the future would be that one day, every school would have teaching assistants or learning mentors who are trained and specialized in being additional attachment figures for children who have experienced trauma or loss.”
